Is there a layer mask filled with black on the type layer? Have you tried a new type layer? Put it at the top of the layer stack to make sure it is not masked by other layers.
Its in new layer all its by itself. No color just marching ants but few times when I began typing it out the font became white and it tried to use one of the color that in second box for background which wasn't selected.
I only have black now so the background color is not changing.
It won't let me do anything else type invisible letters now except undo type mask.
I haven't used the typing feature yet this first time.
I am new user I go no clue about mask.
The other layer just transparent and lines, nothing fancy. Just trying to do it basic graphic outline with only color black over transparent back ground right now.
